(NEWSER) – LMFAO rapper Redfoo, of "Sexy and I Know It" fame, is apparently multi-talented: He's entered the US Open national playoffs, hoping to earn a spot in the year's last Grand Slam tennis tournament, the AP reports. Redfoo will play under his actual name, Stefan Gordy, in a California qualifying tournament in June; he's entered in both the singles and mixed doubles categories, and will play doubles with a 17-year-old he's coaching.

"It's always been a dream of mine to play professional tennis," says the 37-year-old rapper, who played as a junior. Another unexpected playoff entrant: Heroes actor Sendhil Ramamurthy, 38, who also played as a junior. He'll play singles and mixed doubles in a New York qualifying tournament in June.
